So if it's something that's important to a prospective buyer, they should certainly read the reviews with this in mind.
It's nice that they're adding it, but the entire concept is based around a flawed assumption that rotary pump machines and certain levers (every criticism of the DE for body applies equally to every single vibe or gear pump, by the way, so if you like the body on those you won't miss anything, period) compress the puck immediately with pressure leading to higher body. High enough pressure changing the puck is absolutely a real thing. But no machine that has ever been made (unless there's some abandoned prototype in some manufacturer's lab) instantly reaches full pressure. I can't imagine a machine that did would be any good.
My primary hypothesis is that it's 100% in the heads of the user and nowhere else. And not in a bad way, I've been shut up hard on some water related claims after some blind cupping myself. "Very noticeable" things aren't necessarily real at all, our heads are weird. But possibly also a mixed up variable like the Decent baskets not letting as much sediment through, in which case obtaining some other baskets could be plenty. Or perhaps related to temperature profile, which could be worked out with the advanced screen. But what I'm 100% sure it's not is magic or something not even the supposed better body machines can actually do in reality either. So IF (and that's a huge if) it's not just a perception issue, you can mimic it once you find out how.
